I’m a breakfast person. I LOVE going out for breakfast, making breakfast, and eating breakfast foods at any time of the day. My love for this meal comes from all of the family memories I have involving breakfast. This meal always brought my family together, on a Sunday morning after church, or on a special occasion, like Christmas, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day.
My dad would fire up the skillet and make homemade pancakes or waffles, with just a pinch of cinnamon. My brothers would make eggs and bacon. And my mom, sister, and I would slice fruit and toast English muffins. As we got older, we added coffee, and sometimes even mimosas.
Once I was older and starting lived on my own, I began to change my breakfasts. I learned about the importance of balanced meals in school, and started to add more protein sources, fresh fruits, and smoothies to my first meal of the day. I felt better, and had much more energy to power through my busy days at work and school. But of course, I still love eating my favorite breakfast foods with my family whenever we are together!
I also love coming up with easy and delicious breakfast recipes, especially those that include vegetables, whenever I can. So, I thought it was time to create something with a veggie that gets less exposure at the breakfast table, compared to the classics: potatoes, onions, and peppers.
Enter: Spiralized Rutabaga Breakfast Bowls. The rutabaga is a popular root vegetable to use in Scandinavian dishes. This veggie tastes similar to turnips, but has a milder flavor.
Rutabagas are the perfect size to spiralize! Aside from making tasty noodles for these Spiralized Rutabaga Breakfast Bowls, you can also use rutabaga mashed with potatoes or in casseroles. This vegetable even tastes delicious roasted with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
These bowls combine two of my favorite things: breakfast and vegetables! Plus, like most of the recipes on here, they are so incredibly easy. Spiralize some rutabagas, cook the noodles for a few minutes, top with an egg, and add some grated parmesan.
Some of my other favorite breakfast recipes include:
- Easy Broccoli and Cheese Egg Bake
- Zucchini Carrot and Oat Muffins
- Blender Frittata with Spiralized Beets and Goat Cheese
Spiralized Rutabaga Breakfast Bowls
- 3 medium rutabaga - washed and peeled
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 2 to 4 over easy eggs
- Grated aged parmesan - to taste
- Microgreens - for garnish
- Run each rutabaga through the spiralizer. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the rutabaga noodles. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until tender and slightly browned. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
- While the noodles are cooking, prepare the eggs however you like.
- Prepare the bowls by dividing up the rutabaga noodles into two dishes. Top with eggs and grated aged parmesan. Add microgreens to garnish. Enjoy!
Enjoy breakfast this weekend!
